Our PenCott™ family of camouflage patterns will be featured with quite an impressive list of exhibitors at this year’s Enforce Tac and IWA…
Italy’s renowned S.O.D. Gear was one of the very first high-end, real-deal manufacturers to pick up on the PenCott™ patterns, and sent them off with some pretty cool dudes to open doors and meet people in some interesting places… S.O.D. Gear will be at Enforce Tac for the first time this year.
One of the most eagerly awaited appearances at this year’s Enforce Tac and IWA has got to be Direct Action – the new advanced, professional brand from under the umbrella of Helikon-Tex. Enforce Tac / IWA marks the first public unveiling of the full line of Direct Action gear and clothing. Be sure to drop by and check them out.
A brand that’s gained an outstanding reputation for innovation and high-quality over the past few years, UF PRO will be showcasing their range of superb products – including new items like their Monsoon SmallPac system and Hunter Sweater in GreenZone™ , and their brand new Striker HT hot weather BDU in BadLands™ will make its debut at this year’s IWA.

No, ‘ZentauroN’ isn’t the name of a wizard in an upcoming “Hobbit” or “Lord of the Rings” film, its actually the name of a respected German maker of high-quality gear.
ZentauroN (German for ‘Centaur’) produce a wide range of equipment and bags for a variety of applications. Their range includes products for military and law enforcement, civil protection and security, search and rescue, outdoor pursuits and sports.
Well known for their Vulcan Plate Carrier system (seen below), which is in use with German special forces, ZentauroN recently developed a new Multi-Mission Plate Carrier / Body Armor System for the Italian ‘Incursori’ special forces.
They also recently launched the Vulcan and a number of their other core military products in GreenZone™.
See the full line up on their website and follow them on Facebook. ZentauroN will also be exhibiting at Enforce Tac and IWA next month in Nuremburg.
Yesterday’s online and paper editions of the Austrian newspaper ‘Heute’ (Today) featured an article and photo gallery of the Austrian Interior Ministry’s anti-terrorist / special operations unit ‘Einsatzkommando COBRA’.
In the photos below, we see a two-man sniper team in their standard-issue GreenZone™ camouflage smocks and trousers from SABRE in Germany. COBRA has been using a range of GreenZone™ camouflage clothing and equipment made by SABRE since 2012.
Einsatzkommando (EKO) COBRA is a member unit of the ATLAS Network of European police special operations units. EKO COBRA regularly conducts training exercises together with colleagues from Germany’s GSG9, France’s GIGN and RAID, Britain’s SCO19, and others. Within 28 member states of the ATLAS Network, EKO COBRA is said to provide the subject matter expertise in the area of raids on buildings.
See the full ‘Heute’ article and photo gallery online here.
The official website for EKO COBRA can be found here (in German language only).
